Any brand that says it is Cat EC-1 Rated will do. You need 4 gallons of concentrated not the 50/50 premixed stuff. Napa sells Zerex ELC under part# ZXED1. If it isn't on the self have them order you some.

Pooh's link is good.
But the idea with concentrate is that when you flush the system over and over with distilled water, you finally drain it the last time, and then add HALF the systems capacity in concentrate, which is 4 gals since the system is 8gals as a whole. Then if you top it off with distilled water, you end up with 50/50.
